The term "a well regulated militia" did NOT in any way mean or imply a militia subject to written regulations, whether they were Federal, state, county or municipal. The word "regulated" in the context of the prefatory clause to the 2nd Amendment meant "trained," "practiced," "organized," "orderly," "uniform," etc.
